Its easy to use a manual shift knob in an automatic. You have to pull real hard to remove the auto knob (watch your head!), and then just screw on the manual one. There is no button, but you still have to depress the brake to move it out of Park. And No, if you're driving you can't jam it into Reverse. I was reading some technical info on the trannies and its all electronic, so past a certain speed, it doesn't allow it.

I have had this Hamann knob on for years now. It matches the interior nicely and has a sportier look. I use Manual mode 99% of the time and have never had a problem.

1. No button? But there's a button on the stock, so how does that work?

2. I didn't know you could have the paddles on the steering wheel on an auto. :hmm:

button the back of the stock auto shifter... you need to push in the button and step on the brake pedal to get it out and into a gear.

and the paddles on teh steering wheel is a retrofit. step trannys could in fact become SMG like using the paddles to shift gears

1.The button doesnt really do shlt. It works fine without it

2.if you have a steptronic tranny there is a DIY on how to make the SMG paddles work with Step.

1. Nope...depress the brakes to move it out of Park and after that, you can move it freely from R > N > D > Sport or Steptronic Mode. This knob feels alot lighter than the stock one.

2. Paddles can be retrofitted. These are SSG paddles that were installed, specifically for my hand size, so it feels very comfortable for me. Being SSG, and not SMG paddles, either side upshifts and downshifts.

You might notice I also added a Z8 Start button, extra gauges in the center console, aluminum pedals, M3 dead pedal, steering wheel trim and aluminum ebrake. Lots of nice little touches, but very tasteful IMHO and still has that OEM look.

I love your setup.... :drool:

TheCarLessDriven 10-16-2007 02:16 PM

I need to get rid of my ugly ass wood trim :( Then I can buy my new shift knob/e-brake handle, etc.
